8 Who Rose to the Challenge

Almost five years ago, I wrote 9 People Who Did It Anyway, about people who excelled in the exact activity they weren’t supposed to be able to. A dozen lists later, we still see new stories of such accomplishments. Some take on these challenges to continue what they were doing before they became disabled. Some do it because they don’t like to be told they can’t. Some do it to show the world that disabled people encompass a wide range of ambition and ability, just like everyone else. Others do it to raise money and awareness of those less fortunate. And some do it just because they want to. Each has a story worth telling. Read eight of them in an article I wrote for mental_floss.
